0:00:43.600-0:00:48.880
one of my one of my favorite medical doctors 
he's so easygoing he's so much fun he's so

0:00:48.880-0:00:53.600
versatile uh he even has a surgeon sort of like 
hanging on the wall that he doesn't talk about

0:00:53.600-0:00:58.960
but i mean this guy is amazing and when you're 
talking about like going on the edge Dr. Ray is

0:00:58.960-0:01:05.440

thank you for having me i look forward to hearing 
what you have to say me you're speaking oh okay

0:01:34.560-0:01:40.240
well and really i'm very excited about this topic 
only because years and years ago i mean over a

0:01:40.240-0:01:45.760
decade ago when we had our lab in wisconsin we 
were making products and we made a product for

0:01:45.760-0:01:51.040
erectile dysfunction and it worked like amazing 
and it was like 22 dollars is all we charge and

0:01:51.040-0:01:57.680
it had all your circular circulation herbs 
so as as obviously as years went by and we

0:01:57.680-0:02:02.800
learned more and more about uh reproductive system 
there's a lot of things that actually play a role

0:02:02.800-0:02:06.720
in men's health and so Dr. Ray we're 
so honored that you're with us today

0:02:06.720-0:02:11.360
you have so much to share that i'm kind of kind 
of happy i would love for you to jump in and just

0:02:11.360-0:02:17.760
start talking about some of the the main reasons 
men are dealing with erectile dysfunction and some

0:02:17.760-0:02:22.480
of the things that you have found they can do at 
home and popping over to an office such as yours

0:02:23.760-0:02:29.920
you know it's it's really amazing we used to think 
of uh of testosterone deficiency and erectile

0:02:29.920-0:02:40.320
dysfunction as problems of of old folks in their 
90s um but we see it even in the 20s and 30s now

0:02:40.320-0:02:48.000
it's insane and and it parallels all the 
other uh increased disease that we have seen

0:02:49.600-0:03:00.080
in in our country over the last what 50 years um 
i was i i always uh shock people when i ask them

0:03:01.040-0:03:05.840
when we're talking specifically about alzheimer's 
disease because they're concerned about their

0:03:05.840-0:03:12.400
brains and and i asked them when do you think 
the first case of alzheimer's was diagnosed

0:03:13.520-0:03:17.840
and nobody comes anywhere close it was 1907

0:03:18.880-0:03:27.280
and what's significant about that is we went 
uh nearly 6 000 years without alzheimer's

0:03:29.520-0:03:37.120
and and that's the case with a lot of 
diseases so so sadly erectile dysfunction

0:03:37.120-0:03:46.160
and testosterone deficiency which are separate but 
uh do have a relationship um they've exploded they

0:03:46.160-0:03:54.080
used to not be a thing so so not only are we 
seeing it in people in their 50s and 60s where

0:03:54.080-0:03:59.600
where a lot of men would expect to uh see them 
when they shouldn't even though they shouldn't

0:03:59.600-0:04:05.600
but but we also see it in much younger and it 
has everything to do with our crappy lifestyles

0:04:07.360-0:04:15.040
not only our personal decisions uh which aren't 
always the best but also the our societal

0:04:15.040-0:04:21.920
decisions and societally we have we've uh we've 
destroyed our health and of course i'm preaching

0:04:21.920-0:04:29.840
to the choir here because everyone here knows 
that and everyone here is obviously making uh

0:04:29.840-0:04:37.920
every effort they can to help people um avoid to 
the extent that it's possible the the influences

0:04:37.920-0:04:44.560
of our modern society so i don't know if you want 
to get more specific but i'm open to uh your next

0:04:44.560-0:04:49.280
question yeah well i know that when you and i 
had you and i have done videos on this in the

0:04:49.280-0:04:53.840
past we have them in our in our programs and i'm 
so grateful for those and i love the fact that you

0:04:53.840-0:04:58.160
pointed out like the top four reasons you know 
that men are dealing with erectile dysfunction

0:04:58.160-0:05:03.200
obviously it's a circulatory issue that's one of 
the main things because this is blood flow right

0:05:03.200-0:05:07.200
and i think for a lot of people they don't realize 
that and when they start to think about it like

0:05:07.200-0:05:12.560
of course that is blood flow and so if i have 
erectile dysfunction i actually have a circulatory

0:05:12.560-0:05:17.440
you know disorder which then it becomes pretty 
easy to go okay what am i eating what are the

0:05:17.440-0:05:23.520
chemicals that are coming into my body but you 
have some really fantastic ways of helping to

0:05:23.520-0:05:29.360
you know correct that can you can you know besides 
just taking a circulatory tincture for 20 bucks

0:05:29.360-0:05:33.760
and you know can you talk about some of those 
things that you've recommended in the past and

0:05:33.760-0:05:37.680
again if you can talk maybe about not just the 
physical but some of the psychological things that

0:05:37.680-0:05:42.320
are going on in these young young men because it 
isn't just the older ones anymore you know we've

0:05:42.320-0:05:46.480
got 18 and 19 year old men that come to see you 
that are having an issue so this is definitely

0:05:47.840-0:05:53.200
definitely a big much bigger issue than it 
ever has been yeah so so starting in the

0:05:53.200-0:06:00.880
in the psychological it's it again it blows 
my mind how many young people have anxiety

0:06:00.880-0:06:08.160
these days anxiety and depression are rampant 
what is the cause of that well there's isn't

0:06:08.160-0:06:15.600
a cause of it it's multiple causes obviously 
but again we have we have just an explosion

0:06:15.600-0:06:23.520
of toxicity let me give one toxin that everyone 
here in this room is aware of and and needs to

0:06:23.520-0:06:29.920
talk to your clients about uh or to yourself 
about and that is electromagnetic frequencies

0:06:32.080-0:06:38.880
right yes i can't tell you how how 
often i will um be sitting across the uh

0:06:39.600-0:06:44.640
the table from a patient and i say where's 
your cell phone and they pull it out of their

0:06:44.640-0:06:51.600
pocket their front pocket or their back pocket it 
doesn't matter which pocket it's in it's either

0:06:51.600-0:06:58.880
close to your ovaries or it's close to your 
testicles and so is it any surprise that we have

0:06:58.880-0:07:05.200
an explosion of infertility that's one of the big 
causes of infertility and testosterone deficiency

0:07:05.200-0:07:12.000
you're you're radiating your gonads every 
minute of every day so so i'm telling people

0:07:12.640-0:07:17.520
get that phone off your body as much as you 
possibly can i know there's a it's kind of a

0:07:17.520-0:07:25.760
necessary evil in our society and and we um we 
we can't live without it and it's hard to carry

0:07:26.560-0:07:32.960
uh you can't walk around uh holding a um i mean 
i suppose you could but it's not very practical

0:07:32.960-0:07:40.480
to hold a selfie stick with your cell phone three 
feet away from you but as soon as you sit down

0:07:41.360-0:07:46.560
uh put it down on the floor put it on a table 
put it on a chair next to you or just as far

0:07:46.560-0:08:00.320
away as you can um in a similar vein people have 
no idea how much um uh testosterone is affected by

0:08:01.520-0:08:12.240
um wi-fi and so i will have um i will 
do biofeedback scans and find uh that

0:08:12.240-0:08:19.200
electromagnetic frequencies are interfering both 
with hormone production as well as with sleep

0:08:19.840-0:08:27.760
so i tell men and women um if you're gonna have 
that phone in your bedroom put it on airplane mode

0:08:27.760-0:08:34.080
it still works great for to wake you up when 
it's time to wake up because the alarm isn't

0:08:34.080-0:08:40.160
interfered by airplane mode but you need to not 
be bombarded with those signals especially so

0:08:40.160-0:08:44.960
many people keep them in bed with them or put them 
right on their nightstand next to their head which

0:08:44.960-0:08:51.040
is the last place you want it um Dr. Andrew i want 
to ask you a question about that because i've had

0:08:51.040-0:08:57.680
many of my women that are testosterone deficient 
i mean in the last year it's just loaded i mean

0:08:57.680-0:09:03.520
i've always had some you know but i've had so many 
so many um that have been affected by that and i

0:09:03.520-0:09:09.840
just want to mention one trick that has worked for 
my clients because i speak on emf quite a bit you

0:09:09.840-0:09:15.920
can actually get emf protective fabric and you can 
actually put those in as your pockets so you can

0:09:15.920-0:09:22.320
actually sew them into your pocket lining uh to 
help protect if you're gonna put your if you have

0:09:22.320-0:09:26.960
to be on the job and you have to have that phone 
near you even if it's in a case buckled on your

0:09:26.960-0:09:32.400
um your pocket you can line the pants or your 
pocket with that um at least to help a little

0:09:32.400-0:09:37.200
bit just want to throw that out there but can 
you just expand just for a few minutes um on

0:09:37.200-0:09:42.800
testosterone deficiency and maybe what we can do 
i i recommend there's a there's a great herbal

0:09:43.440-0:09:51.200
balancing formula from herbally grounded called 
might for men or balance is the exact same product

0:09:51.200-0:09:55.280
it's just called differently for a man or for 
a woman and i've recommended that but what are

0:09:55.280-0:10:00.000
some tips and tricks we can we can talk about 
when it comes to testosterone deficiency Dr. ray

0:10:00.560-0:10:07.920
well let me um let me finish up the emf for one 
second and that is you please do and that is

0:10:07.920-0:10:14.720
turn your wi-fi off at night most people do not 
need wi-fi when they're sleeping so if you if

0:10:14.720-0:10:21.520
you get a um a timer like you know the Christmas 
lights timer that you use at Christmas time just

0:10:21.520-0:10:28.960
set it so that it turns off uh when you are uh 
not going to need it and comes back on when you do

0:10:28.960-0:10:36.000
need it so so how to increase testosterone there 
are lots of things you're familiar of course um

0:10:36.880-0:10:42.800
there are things um i i like to put 
everything we do into a framework

0:10:45.120-0:10:50.640
we either want to remove things that don't belong 
in the body restore things that do belong in the

0:10:50.640-0:10:58.000
body and or use different variety of tools that 
help the body function the way it was designed to

0:10:58.000-0:11:04.000
function so with regard to testosterone we need to 
remove things that don't belong that includes of

0:11:04.000-0:11:14.160
course emfs but also there are a number of things 
that we do to ourselves such as alcohol that kill

0:11:14.160-0:11:20.480
testosterone production caffeine even in small 
amounts has been found to suppress testosterone

0:11:21.440-0:11:28.720
birth control pills in in women are 
killers because they shut off the uh

0:11:28.720-0:11:34.480
the brain's stimulus to the ovaries which 
means you're not making hormones because the

0:11:35.680-0:11:40.320
the bulk of your estradiol testosterone 
and progesterone are made in the ovaries

0:11:40.320-0:11:46.240
from eggs so the last thing you want to do is 
shut off the ovaries using birth control pills

0:11:47.600-0:11:57.040
um another increasingly common uh toxin that uh as 
we age and now even younger and younger is statin

0:11:57.040-0:12:05.760
drugs statin drugs have the wonderful property of 
reducing cholesterol of course in our community

0:12:05.760-0:12:13.200
we recognize that that cholesterol is actually 
essential to life we none of us exist without it

0:12:14.080-0:12:21.360
and when we reduce cholesterol guess what we make 
all of our steroid hormones with they require the

0:12:21.360-0:12:29.840
cholesterol backbone so cortisol dhea progesterone 
testosterone estradiol androstenedione

0:12:32.160-0:12:37.920
aldosterone you name it all of them come from 
cholesterol so we're shooting ourselves in

0:12:37.920-0:12:43.120
the feet when we take these drugs that are 
supposed to reduce our risk of heart disease

0:12:44.080-0:12:49.840
um not realizing that they don't resist reduce our 
risk of heart disease but that's another matter

0:12:50.640-0:12:56.800
um but they actually increase our risk of heart 
disease because testosterone deficiency in men and

0:12:56.800-0:13:06.080
women is a primary risk factor for heart disease 
so that's a few toxins processed foods are another

0:13:06.720-0:13:10.080
uh good source of impairing 
testosterone production

0:13:11.840-0:13:18.960
i have to tell you in my book um liv i 
actually in in my sex chapter i always um

0:13:18.960-0:13:23.920
i have this i have this picture and it's like 
you know erectile dysfunction and low libido

0:13:23.920-0:13:28.480
is in the meat section you know because like 
all the processed meats will just so i just

0:13:28.480-0:13:33.440
started giggling i apologize you can continue but 
it's true you know these men these men who are

0:13:33.440-0:13:39.600
addicted to alcohol and bratwurst and hot dogs 
and hamburgers and salami i'm like you're just

0:13:39.600-0:13:44.880
like shoot you're just like going to end your 
whole sex life really young so i just right yes

0:13:46.560-0:13:52.480
another thing and this isn't very high 
tech but sleep sleep is kind of important

0:13:53.920-0:13:58.160
and uh deficiency of sleep will 
also impair testosterone production

0:13:59.280-0:14:07.600
okay so um on the things that that can help 
the natural things that can help uh there are

0:14:07.600-0:14:13.520
a number of different nutrients of course uh 
most people have heard of tribulus terrestris

0:14:14.560-0:14:23.520
um there's also nettle root saw palmetto is a well 
recognized uh stimulant of testosterone production

0:14:25.040-0:14:36.000
zinc picolinate if someone is deficient in 
zinc um vitamin a vitamin c boron fish oil

0:14:36.800-0:14:43.840
and ironically of all things sexual 
activity actually increases testosterone

0:14:45.040-0:14:47.440
another thing is decreasing caloric intake

0:14:48.880-0:14:54.160
which is kind of a problem in america because 
we do eat a couple of extra calories per day

0:14:55.600-0:15:02.560
good hydration plenty of water at least two 
liters a day and reducing stress of course that's

0:15:03.200-0:15:09.760
that's piece of cake for everyone here right 
don't watch the news and i will watch the news

0:15:10.320-0:15:17.760
that's right you know stress stress is a big 
impediment to um testosterone production and

0:15:18.320-0:15:23.200
doctor when you as you wrap up testosterone i 
would love you to talk about the psychogenic

0:15:23.200-0:15:27.280
factors because you really made some awesome 
points in the videos that we did for the tnc

0:15:27.280-0:15:33.040
course and so i'm just wondering if you can roll 
into that when you when you can here as well i

0:15:33.040-0:15:37.440
think a lot of times we don't realize that and 
we might look at our sons or our husbands or our

0:15:37.440-0:15:42.400
our fathers and we just you know what can we 
do to help each other through this as well

0:15:42.400-0:15:48.160
because i think that society is especially with 
all the man hate that's out there it's not helping

0:15:48.160-0:15:53.920
anything so if you can roll into that that would 
be awesome well um yeah i will get to that in one

0:15:53.920-0:16:00.400
second the thank you the last things i would say 
about testosterone are exercise exercise to an

0:16:00.400-0:16:08.960
extent will stimulate uh testosterone um there are 
points at which uh if a person exercises and he

0:16:08.960-0:16:16.720
or she finds him or herself um worn out after 
exercising then that's not helping and you're

0:16:16.720-0:16:22.640
going to have to increase testosterone another 
way whether it's by taking testosterone or by

0:16:23.520-0:16:30.080
using other natural means um but that is 
one of the first go-to's is try exercise

0:16:30.720-0:16:38.800
um and then a few a couple more toxins i want to 
mention are heavy metals heavy metals interfere

0:16:38.800-0:16:46.960
with the brain signaling to the testes 
so whenever we see a gentleman with a low

0:16:46.960-0:16:54.000
fsh and a low testosterone his brain is not 
sending the signal to the testes to do their job

0:16:54.000-0:16:57.840
and the testes are probably perfectly 
fine they're just not getting the message

0:16:58.400-0:17:05.280
and to get the message they often have to get some 
heavy metals out of the way another one you may be

0:17:05.280-0:17:14.000
aware of is glyphosate glyphosate is ubiquitous 
and it is uh it is awful and there's actually

0:17:15.040-0:17:21.680
uh we do have ways uh now of removing 
glyphosate different combinations

0:17:23.840-0:17:33.280
different products can and protocols can remove 
glyphosate but obviously um reducing our exposure

0:17:33.280-0:17:37.760
in the first place is going to be important now 
something that a lot of people don't recognize

0:17:37.760-0:17:46.320
uh is they say well i'm living a perfectly clean 
lifestyle and i say yeah but the toxins that you

0:17:46.320-0:17:51.600
accumulated before you started this perfectly 
healthy lifestyle are still with you and we have

0:17:51.600-0:17:57.520
to get rid of them because they're still impairing 
your uh your cellular functions okay back to well

0:17:57.520-0:18:01.600
no no just i'm gonna stop here for a second 
because then i mean we would recommend binders

0:18:01.600-0:18:05.680
zeolite and charcoal and between that clay there's 
so many binders do you have a particular binder

0:18:05.680-0:18:09.600
that you prefer that like someone's listening 
to this for the first time and they're like oh

0:18:09.600-0:18:16.000
my gosh you know what can i do immediately what 
would you recommend no those are all good um i

0:18:16.000-0:18:24.560
i like those um but the the trick is those are in 
the gut and they're not going to pull the toxins

0:18:24.560-0:18:30.640
out of your cells in your brain and in your liver 
and in your fat cells in your adrenal glands

0:18:31.440-0:18:38.320
so so we do need to get a little more serious a 
little more sophisticated when we're talking about

0:18:39.920-0:18:46.320
removing toxins that are embedded in 
tissues so that's a different story okay

0:18:47.040-0:18:53.200
we'll have a different time we'll have you on for 
binders a great a great starting point though is

0:18:53.920-0:19:01.280
uh is to do a binder because if you do 
have um if your liver is able to remove

0:19:01.280-0:19:07.920
some of the toxins um at least the current toxins 
that are circulating there's a difference between

0:19:08.640-0:19:15.120
between embedded and circulating toxins the 
circulating toxins can be removed by the liver

0:19:15.680-0:19:20.560
usually that's within the first 30 days 
of exposure then they'll go into the bile

0:19:20.560-0:19:26.480
and then from the bile they go into the stool 
and then that's where the binders really come

0:19:26.480-0:19:32.400
in handy because then they can grab on to them 
before they can recirculate through the enero

0:19:32.400-0:19:39.280
hepatic circulation back to the portal vein and 
back into the liver which which obviously is a

0:19:39.280-0:19:45.760
disaster because you've detoxified and then you 
re-toxify so binders are excellent in that regard

0:19:46.720-0:19:53.280
moving to to psychosocial factors um are 
you talking about performance anxiety are

0:19:53.280-0:19:57.840
you talking about yeah kind of i mean we have 
about 10 15 minutes left and i want to touch

0:19:57.840-0:20:02.320
on that for sure and i want to talk about the p 
shot i want to talk about some of those things

0:20:02.320-0:20:06.160
because i think there's a lot of people who 
don't know that there's things that they can do

0:20:06.160-0:20:10.880
that will help besides you know all the formulas 
and rebuilding testosterone so yeah if you can

0:20:10.880-0:20:17.600
jump into this this would be wonderful well um i 
don't remember what i was talking about in the uh

0:20:18.320-0:20:24.720
that you're referring to in the psychosocial 
other than uh other than the fact that we do

0:20:24.720-0:20:32.880
have a lot of um uh there are relationship uh 
challenges and of course if if uh if a couple

0:20:34.320-0:20:38.800
does have relationship challenges that's 
definitely going to kill both libido and

0:20:39.360-0:20:48.800
performance but also if if a man or a woman 
has difficulty climaxing even once that does

0:20:48.800-0:20:57.440
make him gun shy and and that can uh really 
impair confidence to continue it becomes a a

0:20:58.640-0:21:04.240
self-fulfilling prophecy if it doesn't work 
once then then that can be really difficult

0:21:04.240-0:21:12.240
and make it harder to even want to try but it can 
also sabotage efforts um in the future because of

0:21:12.240-0:21:19.360
that lack of confidence um another factor 
that's important there is antidepressants

0:21:20.000-0:21:27.120
because antidepressants have profound 
effects on both sexual drive and performance

0:21:27.840-0:21:38.080
um so we want to uh look for uh to the extent 
that it's possible uh underlying causes to address

0:21:38.880-0:21:47.520
um uh mood and anxiety disturbances um to to make 
it so that an individual doesn't need to rely on

0:21:47.520-0:21:54.880
the drugs um but uh what else would you like to 
talk about psychosocial no that's good i just

0:21:54.880-0:21:59.280
wanted to make sure that we mentioned some of it 
and the antidepressants is a big thing because

0:21:59.280-0:22:03.360
when i see someone come in and they're on statins 
and antidepressants and they have no libido it's

0:22:03.360-0:22:08.800
a pretty it's a pretty easy fix i mean not easy 
fix of course but it's a pretty good explanation

0:22:08.800-0:22:12.800
uh you have everything i've been going against you 
so of course this is going to be difficult so just

0:22:12.800-0:22:18.160
before we get into like the p shot just to recap 
so we're going to we're going to remove the toxins

0:22:18.160-0:22:22.640
ems whatever we can do we're going to start 
building testosterone i'm telling you nettle

0:22:22.640-0:22:27.840
you can get nettle in a tincture form it works 
phenomenal right so we've recommended that

0:22:27.840-0:22:32.400
for many many many years plus you lose weight 
men lose weight when they start taking nettle

0:22:32.400-0:22:37.200
um only because they're it builds up their 
testosterone and so they lose weight they have

0:22:37.200-0:22:43.120
a better metabolic response so they metabolize 
easier so again some wonderful products there

0:22:43.760-0:22:49.120
definitely look at the circulatory um the 
circuitry tinctures and products that you can have

0:22:49.120-0:22:55.680
that you can use for that i will mention that um 
just this is 2022 and during 2021 we had a lot

0:22:55.680-0:23:01.600
of people that had a lot of toxins put into their 
body and um and we've never had a worse time from

0:23:01.600-0:23:06.880
myocarditis on the planet we've never had a worst 
experience when it comes to blood clotting even

0:23:06.880-0:23:12.240
the funeral directors are pulling these enormously 
along three feet class out of the people who've

0:23:12.240-0:23:18.480
passed away as they pull the blood out to put the 
formaldehyde in uh these people are literally just

0:23:18.480-0:23:23.360
dying of these huge blood clots and so this is 
a very real real epidemic and that's why we've

0:23:23.360-0:23:28.880
seen erectile dysfunction just go through the roof 
in the last even in the military they track every

0:23:28.880-0:23:34.400
single well the whole the whole country in most 
countries your medical doctor will track with a

0:23:34.400-0:23:39.440
code what you're coming in for and then those can 
be read we can see okay we always have about you

0:23:39.440-0:23:45.040
know 2500 people a month who have depression and 
2 700 women who blah blah you know or men have you

0:23:45.040-0:23:51.120
know ed whatever and then like now the numbers are 
out of the out of the sky and so this is something

0:23:51.120-0:23:56.400
that we need to address so as we go into what the 
p shot can do and some things they can do at home

0:23:57.040-0:24:02.160
and even the osha we can address some of the women 
concerns here as well um i just wanted to make

0:24:02.160-0:24:06.880
sure we had that brief okay here's some things you 
can do right away and now here are some things you

0:24:06.880-0:24:12.880
might need to get um you know help with from you 
know a place such as you who does the p shot so

0:24:12.880-0:24:18.880
can you run run along with that for a little bit 
Dr. Andrew so in terms of erectile dysfunction we

0:24:18.880-0:24:28.000
have four common causes certainly um 80 of a 
rectal dysfunction involves vascular disease

0:24:29.040-0:24:36.080
so if a man has difficulty with erections chances 
are really good he has heart disease and doesn't

0:24:36.080-0:24:45.040
know it that's really key because because it gives 
us a window into what's going on in the heart just

0:24:45.040-0:24:53.200
by what's happening on the outside so to speak or 
should i say what's not happening on the outside

0:24:54.560-0:25:00.480
so the the arteries in the penis are about 
the same size as the arteries in the heart

0:25:01.360-0:25:08.800
and the the forces that are acting on the arterial 
system don't only affect the heart they affect the

0:25:08.800-0:25:13.840
brain and the kidneys and everywhere the 
blood vessels go including the penis so

0:25:14.400-0:25:20.720
so one of the factors that that we target 
when uh when a man has erectile dysfunction

0:25:21.360-0:25:27.840
uh after he has adequate testosterone 
um because testosterone is the other

0:25:29.520-0:25:37.760
largest factor is um uh vascular disease how do we 
deal with that well there's two approaches and and

0:25:37.760-0:25:44.320
this is basically what we do with just about any 
disease and that is we address the current disease

0:25:45.040-0:25:48.560
while we're working on the factors that 
cause the disease in the first place so

0:25:48.560-0:25:54.480
that it doesn't recur so to address the 
current disease there are two approaches

0:25:55.200-0:26:03.360
um that we take well maybe three we want to 
dilate the the arteries in the uh in the penis

0:26:03.360-0:26:10.240
everyone's familiar with a couple of drugs uh by 
the name of viagra cialis and levitra that's three

0:26:11.760-0:26:20.480
those those stimulate the production of nitric 
oxide which locally dilates blood vessels of

0:26:20.480-0:26:26.080
course it dilates them throughout the body not 
just the penis and so you do have risk of blood

0:26:26.080-0:26:34.720
pressure lowering in men who are already on blood 
pressure medicine so that's a a a concern but

0:26:36.320-0:26:42.400
we want to reduce uh or rather increase nitric 
oxide production and there are a number of

0:26:42.400-0:26:50.480
different products that are in uh widely 
available um that include uh beetroot powder

0:26:50.480-0:27:00.240
and l-citrulline and l-arginine i do have to make 
a a note and a number of other nutrients including

0:27:00.240-0:27:06.720
amino acids but i do need to make a note people 
have latched on to l-arginine and say oh that's

0:27:06.720-0:27:14.720
the magic bullet except when you're over 20 which 
most men with erectile dysfunction are l-arginine

0:27:15.520-0:27:23.600
the body does not convert it uh adequately into 
the active form that can be used for nitric oxide

0:27:23.600-0:27:29.680
production so so we need to use other things like 
l-citrulline and uh beetroot powder or beetroot

0:27:29.680-0:27:35.920
juice um and there's there are a number of 
other nutrients certainly a number of b vitamins

0:27:38.320-0:27:40.320
and other vitamins and minerals that

0:27:41.840-0:27:47.760
contribute to nitric oxide production and those 
exercise bands Dr. Andrew those work really well

0:27:47.760-0:27:56.800
as well and exercise bands okay next thing is um 
breaking up the plaques that are already there

0:27:57.920-0:28:05.360
um how we do that uh internet the increasing 
nitric oxide production helps in over the long

0:28:05.360-0:28:10.800
run but in the short run you need to break 
up the plaques and how we do that is using

0:28:10.800-0:28:18.960
acoustic wave therapy so it's the same kind of 
devices same technology that is used to break up

0:28:18.960-0:28:27.600
stones in the kidneys so very powerful except we 
use a lot gentler approach on penises than we do

0:28:27.600-0:28:33.360
on kidneys because kidney stones you've got 
to go through part of the body to get to them

0:28:34.160-0:28:44.320
and you and and the stones are obviously quite 
uh solid um so we use a a gentle approach device

0:28:44.880-0:28:51.680
we use a cream to numb the penis 
because it doesn't like having a device

0:28:56.000-0:29:06.960
hitting it multiple times per second 
without being numb and uh and that we do

0:29:06.960-0:29:12.880
a series of sessions six sessions in a row 
usually either twice a week or once a week

0:29:14.160-0:29:22.960
and then we can augment that um if if it's more 
severe the erectile dysfunction with the p shot

0:29:23.600-0:29:29.680
or some a number of men will just use the 
p shot instead of the acoustic wave therapy

0:29:31.440-0:29:36.960
the pc is there before you continue the p-shot 
is there a name for acoustic wave therapy or

0:29:36.960-0:29:40.640
is there's a gentleman who lives in a different 
state just google acoustic wave therapy for

0:29:40.640-0:29:45.840
penises near me like how do you how do you find 
that so they would know how to look for that

0:29:45.840-0:29:52.000
um there are different there are a number of 
different names they are proprietary names

0:29:52.720-0:30:01.920
so they're they're brands um and i don't want to 
i i used to pay a lot of money to one of these

0:30:01.920-0:30:08.240
companies so that i could use their brand name 
but it's all the same thing everyone does the same

0:30:08.240-0:30:16.720
uh basic process um so you could just google 
shockwave therapy or acoustic wave therapy

0:30:16.720-0:30:23.200
thank you for um erectile dysfunction and you'll 
be able to find plenty of places that do it

0:30:24.080-0:30:34.000
um so moving to the p shot um the p shot uses the 
an individual's platelets so we draw your blood

0:30:34.560-0:30:37.840
and then we spin it down 
with a high speed centrifuge

0:30:38.560-0:30:46.800
uh faster than a than a uh the blood draw kind 
of uh centrifuge and and remove the platelets

0:30:46.800-0:30:52.480
and inject the platelets into specific places 
in the penis and every time i mention that

0:30:53.600-0:30:58.400
both men and women start to cringe and then i 
say no no don't worry you don't feel it because

0:30:58.400-0:31:06.000
the penis is numb um uh and so we inject 
it into five places on the penis and those

0:31:06.000-0:31:12.400
platelets have growth factors that stimulate 
new blood vessel formation to get around plaques

0:31:13.600-0:31:21.600
so that's another means of increasing blood flow 
to the penis to improve uh erectile function and

0:31:23.120-0:31:28.800
uh as well as peyronie's disease which 
isn't an abnormal curvature to the

0:31:29.440-0:31:33.040
penis when it's erect which is very painful 
and makes intercourse very difficult

0:31:34.320-0:31:39.760
um shall we transition to the o shot for a second 
yeah go right ahead i think a lot of people aren't

0:31:39.760-0:31:44.560
aware these even exist and so i thought well i 
just throw it and there's a bonus so the o shot

0:31:44.560-0:31:51.440
is the corollary to the p shot incidentally p in p 
shot doesn't stand for penis it stands for priapus

0:31:53.600-0:32:04.400
and the o shot stands for orgasm this is in 
women so we do the same process we remove uh

0:32:04.400-0:32:10.400
blood from the from the vein and spin it down 
remove the platelets inject the platelets

0:32:11.040-0:32:22.320
into the numb clitoris and vagina and the clitoris 
is the female analog to the penis and what most

0:32:22.320-0:32:29.440
women and doctors don't recognize is that little 
tiny nubbin that we call the clitoris is just

0:32:29.440-0:32:39.120
the tip of the clitoral iceberg so the 
clitoris actually extends far deeper behind

0:32:40.240-0:32:49.920
what we actually physically see and so we inject 
platelets into that into the space the the organ

0:32:50.560-0:32:55.840
of the clitoris and it fills the clitoris so 
that it becomes much more sexually responsive

0:32:57.120-0:33:03.840
hopefully like it used to be or like maybe it 
never was in some cases and then we inject more

0:33:05.040-0:33:11.680
into the vagina just behind the high middle 
ring between the vagina and the bladder

0:33:12.640-0:33:21.840
and incidentally some of you may recognize that as 
the g-spot um but part of the advantage of this is

0:33:22.720-0:33:31.600
this thickens the wall between the vagina and the 
bladder to help with continence and a lot of women

0:33:31.600-0:33:37.840
find after they've had children that they can't 
jump on the trampoline or cough or laugh or sneeze

0:33:38.560-0:33:46.880
anymore without having little squirts and some 
women don't seem to like that very much so so by

0:33:46.880-0:33:53.520
injecting platelets into that region then then 
we can strengthen that wall and that often does

0:33:53.520-0:34:03.840
the does the trick now as soon as i say that i 
have to add um we also use uh hormone pellets and

0:34:04.960-0:34:13.920
we will often um give women some estrogen small 
dose of estrogen and that also can have profound

0:34:13.920-0:34:22.400
effects on incontinence uh on making it so that 
you don't have to run to the bathroom in a hurry

0:34:24.240-0:34:31.040
and at the same time it improves the uh 
the ability of the well the the vagina

0:34:32.560-0:34:39.280
we see both atrophy uh in the vagina 
that just no longer has estrogen

0:34:39.280-0:34:44.960
and no longer has testosterone or progesterone 
uh using those hormones we can increase the

0:34:45.760-0:34:53.600
the thickness of the vagina and the 
moisture of the vagina rather the

0:34:53.600-0:34:59.680
responsiveness of the vagina so that under 
sexual stimulation moisture is produced where

0:35:00.560-0:35:08.640
where it no longer is uh once you're in menopause 
you know what i love Dr. Ray and that's why i love

0:35:08.640-0:35:15.280
having you as part of holistic health educators 
is that you yes you will use some hormonal pellets

0:35:15.280-0:35:19.360
you know here and some there but it's not you 
know you're not you're looking to put someone

0:35:19.360-0:35:23.360
on them for the rest of their life and i think 
that's very important i think a lot of people um

0:35:23.360-0:35:28.560
you know because we don't all recommend obviously 
hormonal therapy however if we can do something

0:35:28.560-0:35:34.720
to help increase and thicken our walls um you 
know so that we can avoid a prolapsed uterus

0:35:34.720-0:35:40.320
or we can avoid you know you know other ailments 
i think that it's something that you're really

0:35:40.320-0:35:44.880
respectful of and i want to thank you for that and 
i would encourage all of you all those of you who

0:35:44.880-0:35:50.640
are students or who are involved in natural health 
find find those in your community such as dr

0:35:50.640-0:35:55.760
Ray for pizzagate is a medical doctor who does 
biofeedback hello you know find them because

0:35:55.760-0:36:00.800
they're everywhere especially now you have many 
more medical doctors coming out of the woodwork

0:36:00.800-0:36:06.880
who want to work with people in the natural world 
and kind of combine those those worlds okay dr

0:36:06.880-0:36:11.920
Andrew is there anything else you want to add 
before we wrap up well you know the funnest thing

0:36:11.920-0:36:23.600
for me is to to talk to a couple who have not
